Today's post is a first for me.  You know how much I just love stamping.  It's my thing. Well the polish I'm featuring today is so beautiful that I just couldn't stamp over it. Believe me, I tried.  I tested out different colors on my thumbs. I just kept coming back to simplicity and showing the beauty of this polish all by itself.

I actually astonished myself.  Never did I think a single polish would make me swoon so. Get this-it's NOT brown!  That even amazes me more!

Before the big reveal, here's the question to ponder for today.  I've been attempting to talk to this guy online who messaged me and we talked on the phone once.  The texts are sporadic and usually generated by me first.  His mantra is how busy he is and how little time he has.  I literally decided not to text him anymore but after a few days of not hearing from him (we last left it that he would let me know when he was free) I texted him just to say hi.  His reply was man you must have been really busy.  My reply was no, I didn't want to bug you when you're busy.  His reply hours later was "I'm always busy."

I've got to tell you that this is way past getting old for me.  My reply basically said, most people tend to make time when they are interested in pursuing a relationship. You have my number, call me if you ever have time and are interested.

The question to ponder is this.  Don't people make time if they are really interested in something, be it a person or a thing?  Just like our nail polish addictions, we all have lives and work and family, but we make time to do our nails and write a blog.  Isn't that the truth?  That if this guy were really interested, he'd make the time right?  Why are guys so impossible?

Here's your silly bottle shot for today.

This is Barry M Blue Plum, from their new Gelly line and Picture Polish Cosmos!!  This is the most beautiful polish I have ever laid my eyes on.  When I saw the swatches The Swatchaholic had done, I knew I had to have it. Plus she said it would probably be the closest to Essie Starry Starry Night we'll ever come to.

I started with Cosmos and an accent of Blue Plum.  Of course, the idea was to stamp with the opposite color, but this was before I laid my eyes on my nails.  Here are the stunning shots.

The only bummer is that the sun has been in hiding the past week or so.  I never got to see what this did in the sunlight.  It's a sure bet I'll be wearing this again on a sunny day to see that sparkle.  Is this not the most gorgeous color you've ever seen? Swoooooooooooooooooon.

Like I mentioned earlier, I did some trial stamping on my thumbs.  I tried stamping with Blue Plum but the color was too subtle.  I tried using a light blue but realized that I just did not want to cover up that sparkle whatsoever.

All I ended up doing was stamping the accent nail with Cosmos, but you can't see the design, just some sparkle on the blue creme.  So I just added my funky and called it a day.  Here are the results.

I even made sure my cuticle lines were perfect for this beauty.  For those interested, I did use Pueen plate 18 for the accent nail.

Have any of you ever had this reaction to a single polish before?  What polish was it? I'm wondering if I should get a back up!!!

Any thoughts on my busy guy story?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
